The newly released 14-inch MacBook Pro is already £100 off on Currys. It starts with an 8-core M1 Pro chip (upgradeable to M1 Max), gorgeous mini LED display, 16GB RAM, 14-core GPU and 512GB of storage.

Apple is slashing £344 off the 1TB model MacBook Pro 14. It features a 14.2-inch mini-LED backlit display and delivers up to 14 hours of battery life. The laptop is powered by Apple's M1 Pro 8-core chip coupled with 16GB of RAM and employs a 14-core GPU for graphics. In our M1 MacBook Pro 14 (opens in new tab) review, its elegant design, excellent performance, and stellar battery life earned it a 4 out of 5 star rating. It's the Editor's Choice best laptop for power-users. 

MacBook Air (M1/8GB/256GB): was £999 now £897 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
Let’s start with the cheapest way to get a taste of Apple’s new silicon while on the go. As you can read in our MacBook Air with M1 review (opens in new tab), the switch to an ARM-based processor presents a groundbreaking transformation with blistering performance and super-long battery life. All of this is crammed into a seriously sleek chassis and runs so cool, it doesn’t need a fan.

512GB: was £1,249 now £1,099 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

MacBook Pro (M1/8GB/256GB): was £1,299 now £1,149 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
On the surface of it, differences are minimal between this MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air. But thanks to an impeccable thermal management system, this machine is capable of so much more, as you can read in our MacBook Pro M1 review (opens in new tab). With the addition of a fan, the Pro can handle processor-intensive tasks on a more sustained basis than the Air, and the bigger chassis gives this a far better battery performance.

Refurbished MacBook Pro (M1/8GB/256GB): was £1,299 now £950 @ Hoxton Macs (opens in new tab)
The refurbished section is one of the best places to look for deals. Hoxton has some incredibly rigorous standards and testing to make sure each refurbished product comes out of the factory just like new. Better yet, everything is covered by a one-year warranty with the chance to expand that with Apple Care.

Refurbished MacBook Air (M1/8GB/256GB): was £999 now £730 @ Hoxton Macs (opens in new tab)
Let’s start with the cheapest way to get a taste of Apple’s new silicon while on the go.
